Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Cadbury Harvest Mix Candies


I'm in a cookie making roll.  It's a tasty habit, but it isn't necessarily good for my health.  It is the season of overindulgence.  


I have made other recipes between these two batches of cookies, but I wanted to post this fall themed cookie recipe before Thanksgiving.

Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips


It is going to be an excited November.  I'm leaving to go to Spain this coming Thursday.  I'll be there vacationing for ten days.  


I will work for two days when I get back from Spain, and then I am going to San Francisco for a few days for a work conference.  Unfortunately,  I'm not going to get much work done in November.

Harvest Bread


I'm posting another bread recipe.  There is nothing as delicious and comforting as home made bread.


This loaf was a little less healthy than my prior bread loaves because it isn't 100 % whole wheat.  It only has a cup of whole wheat flour.

Quick Three-Bean Chili


This chili cheese fries combo was just a matter of happenstance. When I made this chili I just happen to have a partly used bag of frozen fries in my freezer and some cheddar cheese in my fridge.


I rarely have frozen french fries. I might by them once every few years. I bought them to make tin foil dinner. Have you ever made tin foil dinners?

Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles


I don't make snickerdoodles that often.  When I make desserts, I am often drawn to chocolate baked goods.  Fortunately, when I venture of my regular baking rut, I'm often pleased.


Snickerdoodles often have a nice tender texture and warm spices.

Roasted Parmesan Herb Butternut Squash


This is a Fall appropriate side dish.  Butternut squash are one of my favorite vegetables.  I like there soft and creamy texture.


My grandmother would often serve baked butternut squash with caramelized brown sugar on top.  I haven't eaten butternut squash that way for many years, probably since I ate it with her.  I am becoming nostalgic just thinking about it.

Whole Grain Pumpkin Yeast Bread


I made bread again!  I recently made 100% whole wheat sandwich bread and 100% whole wheat bread.  Those may sound like the exact same recipe, but there were subtle differences.


I have made other yeast bread recipes in the past.  Over a year a go I made pumpkin cinnamon rolls,  raspberry rolls with lemon glaze, and regular cinnamon rolls.
